Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer...He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee, his driver, who's also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy...Sebastian defends people other lawyers won't go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult, who is accused of molesting and murdering two little girls; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Why these clients? Because he believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial, even if he, Sebastian, has to cheat to secure one."--provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 September #2
    There comes a moment in this book when the reader is likely to think: "Ah, now I see what he's doing." At first, the novel appears to be a series of tenuously related episodes in the life of defense attorney Sebastian Rudd, who operates his practice out of a customized van and who actively seeks out big cases and doesn't shy away from the media or from breaking the occasional rule. The cases include the murders of two girls; a man on trial for shooting a police officer (during a raid on the man's house); the abduction of a pregnant woman; and a prison break. They feel, at first, like stand-alone stories, but at some point past the halfway mark, they begin to link up, and we realize that Grisham is trying to show us the fabric of Rudd's working life—chaotic, unpredictable, with several cases going on at the same time. Rudd shares some literary DNA with Michael Connelly's Mickey Haller (the Lincoln Lawyer), but Grisham's hero is no rip-off. Rudd is a complex, compelling character, who, we hope, will appear again and again. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Grisham name, of course, is all that's needed to ensure an audience, but this time he delivers a quality thriller to go with the brand. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
